Wise- tension not stable when machine beeps

#1
Is it common for the machine to pull tension, hear the beep to clamp off, but the tension display continues to go up and down? Seems to be taking a long Time to stabilize.
 
#2
Yes, it continues to pull as the string stretches when in constant pull mode (and will go "up/down" as it adjusts to maintain tension.)
If you don't want electric CP you could have just stayed with your crank or DW mechanism.

Maybe I'm confused as to what you're asking. Sounds like it is working as designed.

You can use it in lockout mode if you'd prefer.

yeah, I know what constant pull does.
I thought it pulled set tension, then adjusted, then beeped when it held set tension so you can clamp off. When the machine 'beeps' I go to clamp off, the tension is often still bouncing around a few more seconds. if that is normal so be it, but the machine is beeping before the tension is held, so there is the potential for clamping at the wrong tension.

Even high end eCP are making adjustments after they reach ref tension. Just train yourself not to clamp as soon as you hear the beep. When the tensioner stops making noise is when I clamp the string. And this waiting to clamp period could vary between 10-20 seconds. Your other option is to clamp as soon as you hear the beep even if you know the tension is not exact. Depends on your degree of OCD-ness.

ok. good to know. I thought it beeped when it maintained tension, not reference tension. I'll just ignore it and slow down. its usually just 2-5 seconds.

This is normal. You can do a couple of things to limit this. Pre-stretch the string, or use the slowest pull speed. It's not an issue as long as you are consistent … for example don't wait 6 seconds after the beep to clamp on one string job and then clamp 2 seconds after the beep on another.

What string are you using? A soft stretching string will generally continue to stretch a long time where a stiffer string settles out a lot quicker. Also the more over shoot there is the faster the settle. Machine prestretch will help too.

I usually use Yonex poly tour, but also string with Wilson revolve poly and Wilson NXT synthetic for others. definitely noticed more tension adjusting on the syn gut. just a few seconds though. nothing like 10 seconds. I'll try the pre stretch too, never used it before. I just got the wise a couple weeks ago, so only used 5x so far.

that's normal
